A Femme Fatale is an irresistible, alluring and seductive woman who leads men into difficult situations. Don't you think that is an appropriate description of the CrossFit "Girl" workouts? They are seductive and alluring and every time we meet them we find ourselves in a difficult situation.
This lady's history is a bit blurry. We know she's been around at least since Nov 27, 2007 as that's when CrossFit published a video demo of her.
She first appeared with a different box height (20” instead of 24” for men).
However, if you search for her on the CrossFit Mainsite she is elusive. Perhaps that's part of her allure?
In the CrossFit forum, user Mark Brinton attributed the workout to “CrossFit North” (CrossFit’s very first affiliate – near Bellevue, WA USA). Brinton first cited it in the CrossFit Forum on June 7, 2006 as one of the workouts that gym used to “evaluate new members.” How would you have liked your very first CrossFit workout to be the one were doing today?
